My youngest is trying her hand at blogging today. She spent a day last week photo journaling her day. These are her pictures and her words. This is what a day in the life of a nine-year-old homeschooler is like.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 9 am Morning Meetup
Each morning everyone meets for Morning Meetup. During this time, we start our day, discuss what we’ll be doing, and work on any family subjects.
This is a calendar of our days in school. We do this every morning.
This is my planner where I write all my stuff for the day.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 11 am Meals On Wheels
Once a week, we deliver meals to the elderly with our local Meals On Wheels. The girls are responsible for certain aspects of the delivery.
Meals on Wheels is a thing we do on certain days. I put my milk in here to deliver to elderly people.
This is one of the buildings where we deliver for Meals on Wheels.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 12 pm Individual Work
After Morning Meetup, the girls move on to their individual work. Some of this is independent work and some of it requires guidance from mom.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: Science
I do this every day to see about the weather. This tells which direction the wind is blowing.
This tells what the temperature is outside.
This is the chart I use to write everything down for 15 days.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: History
We are reading Caroline in our history.
I’m reading it to my mom.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: Language Arts
This is my copywork for the week. Today I am doing dictation.
This is my Latin quiz. I only have quizzes on certain days.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 2 pm The County Fair
Nearly every day, we have an out-of-the-house activity like ballet, art, or a field trip. This week our county fair was in town, so we went to the fair to do a little exploring.
This is our county fair. It only happens once a year.
This is my art that I put in the fair. I won first and third place.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 5 pm End of the Day
I get to watch Roku every day after I have all my school and chores done.
Not every day includes a trip to the fair, but not every day in our homeschool is the same. Homeschooling gives us the freedom to make an impromptu trip to the fair, museum, or a nature walk. Education isn’t always found in a book. Sometimes learning comes best from exploring.
Linking Up With Other iHomeschool Bloggers:
Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children. I can often be found reading a good book (or even sometimes just an okay book) and enjoying a jar of Nutella — don’t judge. I blog, here, at HideTheChocolate.com when I’m not creating book clubs and making lists…lots and lots of lists (it’s an addiction). Learn more…
Mother of 3 says
I LOVE this! How fun to see the day through her eyes.
It was fun for me, too. I loved seeing what she decided was “picture-worthy.”
Very cool perspective, well done! I’ve been trying to talk my two into taking the blog over for a day – no luck yet – but, we’ll see. 🙂
Haha! I would have so much free time if they just wrote the blog for me each week!
Loved this. Her artwork is beautiful!
Aww, Thanks, Shelly!
This is so great! My 8.5 year old loved reading this with me. Now she wants to do one! 🙂 She’d like to know where you found the Magic School Bus weather sheet.
That’s great! I really should get the kids to write my blog posts. 😉 The weather sheet came in a Magic School Bus subscription.
